    I believe one (close in 1953)

    Mythical SF Chronicle scouting report: "That Jeff runs like a deer. Unfortunately, he also hits AND throws like one." I am Venus DeMilo - NO ARM! I can play like a big leaguer, I can field like Luzinski, run like Lombardi. The secret to managing is keeping the ones who hate you away from the undecided ones. I am a triumph of quantity over quality. I'm almost useful, every village needs an idiot.

      Good guess - Actually two.

      A bases loaded single with two outs in game four of 1953 series.
      Billy Martin was tossed out at the plate trying to score.

      A game ending home run in game three of the 1964 series.

          Yes, but the game ended and that was the question...a bit of a trick question I suppose...

            Clever (although the HIT did not end the game, Martin did

              Yes, but the hit came first, then the out at home.
